The Hovercraft snowboard from Jones Snowboards has a legion of loyal followers who love this deck for its ability to blow through powder, hold edge in hardpack, and comfortably maneuver ice all in the same run. At first this board feels like it could be a snow surfer's cousin, but you quickly discover it handles more like a rally car. The blunt nose and directional rocker profile give the front lift in deep snow, while a stiff, wide tail with Mellow Magne-Traction keeps the end locked-in over rough terrain. The tail edges bevel 1° to prevent catching an edge and allow for more playful control. The Hovercraft delivers the best of both snow worlds with a ride that's worth every penny.

    Perfect board for surfers. Fast rail to rail and fun to attack backside snow lips with. Somewhat squirrelly on the occasional hardback patches. Deep pow zen master.

    Excellent board to ride pow and trees with. If you tend to ride backcountry and are looking for a "one quiver," board -- the Hovercraft is the solution.

    I purchased this board for the powder but it is also a great carver on the groomer.

    Asked by David on 10/20/2014
    What size board should I get the Jones Hovercraft in if I weigh 165 lbs and have a height of 5'10? I was told elsewhere that I should get a 152 which is what I usually ride but I thought that people rode bigger boards for powder.
    Answered by Tyler K (Tactics Employee) on 10/20/2014
    Generally people do ride bigger boards for powder but the Hovercraft rides 8-10 sizes bigger than what it actually is. A 152 is really going to ride like a 160-162.
